I assumed that his "fifteen years" comment meant that it was juvenile when planted (?)

It sure looks like Kennybenjamin's fenestralis has about 4' more trunk than the alfredii in the original post.  It was my understanding that the alfredii was a faster grower, and that the fenestralis was fairly slow.  But that may have been from reading about people growing them in marginal climates, without the benefit of heat and humidity.  We also don't know how old Kennybenjamin's palm was when it was planted.  It would make a big difference if it were planted 15 years ago as a 10' OA palm instead of a seedling...  :) 

In this part of the world, B.fenestralis is the quickest, then B.alfredii, with B.madacascariensis a very distant last!
